This poem was inspired by a Philip Glass piece called "The Kiss" from the OST of the movie "The Hours".

Sometimes it's hard to fight the urge to fall for someone even if the world isn't in favor of it.
I wrote this poem for my ex, and this is my description of the first time we actually kissed.

(The word "FORBIDDEN" here refers to the fact that when we got together, she was still in another relationship, but she was very unhappy and we had to keep our relationship a secret.)

Ode to Forbidden Love



We move closer to each other

Little by little

Inch by inch

My hand on your cheek

Your hand on my neck


We erase the space between us as I move in to kiss you

I smell your sweet scent and it makes my head spin

Our tongues do a dance choreographed by our lust

This feeling – we’re living in a world that’s unjust.


The world spins faster and faster

This is a battle against time

Our hearts are raging with fire

I am not yours, and you are not mine.


Every breath makes me hold you tighter

The sound of your exhale is music to my ears.

In this moment we are sinners,

Let’s blur the lines, and make everything clear.


Your grip is tight.

Don’t stop to the urge to fight.

If tonight is all we have,

Might as well die fighting, than be consumed by fright.


This is the moment you and I stop thinking.


Our breathing becomes one

As our clothes become undone

Your curves

My curves


Our curse will live on.
